BioAlert Lp15

Every year, over 25,000 people in North America are infected by Legionella Pneumophila, a bacterium found in industrial and commercial water systems. When this pathogen is released through water droplets in the air and inhaled by people nearby, it can cause Legionnaires’ disease, a rare form of pneumonia that is fatal for 10 to 15% of its victims. This bacteria is responsible for major outbreaks that can affect a company’s financial stability and reputation. 

Only continuous monitoring can assure a proper risk management for water systems, which are subject to strict regulations regarding Legionella control. Currently, bacterial detection procedures can take up to 14 days before providing results and are also very complex and lengthy, increasing the risks associated with Legionella contamination. This is why our company has developed a breakthrough technology in the field of bacterial detection: BioAlert Lp15.

Our device detects the presence of bacteria directly at the cooling system site. BioAlert Lp15 is 100% automated and requires no human intervention, no specialized training or shipment of samples to laboratories.
